    La Grua Center presents lecture on Gullah culture

    As our country blossoms — or tries to — and there is new energy for and curiosity about the many cultures folded into our society, every day is an opportunity for a learning experience.

    Consider a virtual Wednesday presentation hosted by the La Grua Center in Stonington: "Gullah Folklore & Storytelling with Kyndra Joi." A native of Charleston and a resident of New Orleans, Joi, known as "Gulla Girl," is a radio personality, activist and educator who is an expert on the Gullah — an African American community in the Lowcountry region of South Carolina and Georgia that preserves and relishes their linguistic and cultural traditions.

    "Gullah Folklore and Storytelling with Kyndra Joi," virtually at 6 p.m. Wednesday; free, but registration required and a link will be sent approximately two hours before the event begins; lagruacenter.org, (860) 535-2300.
